NYC RoboGeisha Screening with Party on May 18th!



If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that the Japanese love their biomechanical women! Subway Cinema (creator of the NY Asian Film Festival) is also aware of this fact and strives to bring these borderline psychotic movies to the States in the spirit of cultural exchange. To that end, May 18th sees the coming of RoboGeisha!

From the demented imaginations of director Noboru Iguchi (Machine Girl) and special effects savant Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police) comes this brain-blasting vision of the future which defies description, sanity, and good taste. The evil Kageno Corporation wants to return Japan to more traditional values and the weapons in their arsenal include a massive Geisha Army, two supernatural bikini-clad assassins, and a plan to detonate a nuclear device on Mt. Fuji. But that’s not enough! They’re so evil that they also recruit two sisters and turn them into….RoboGeisha! However, RoboGeisha have uncontrollable hearts, and it’s not long before one of them begins to wonder if there’s more to life than being a kimono-clad, robotic killing machine. The screen swarms with nutso concepts like acid breast milk, butt swords, and fried shrimp weapons while peekaboo sexiness and goofy ultra-violence make this the one cult movie to rule them all.

Details of the screening follow:

  • Tuesday, May 18 @ 7:30pm
  • Held at Japan Society, 333 East 47th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenues, in NYC
  • Witness the dawn of RoboGeisha at a special launch for this summer’s New York Asian Film Festival. Line-up titles will be revealed, and there will even be a massive party after the screening! Prizes! Special screenings of the never-seen-in-America short films “Scary Geisha Army: Welcome to Hell” and “Vampire Frankenstein Girl”. Post-screening Skype Q&A with director Noboru Iguchi and special effects genius Yoshihiro Nishimura!

    Tickets are only $12 (or $8 for students, seniors, and Japan Society members). Click here to buy your tickets now, or face a lifetime of regrets!

    This screening is co-presented by Japan Society, Subway Cinema, Giant Robot, and Funimation, who will release RoboGeisha on DVD this fall.

    Ellen Page and The Cured Come Home to VOD



    We’ve been talking about the new zombie flick starring Ellen Page entitled The Cured for quite some time now, and we’ll soon be able to sink our teeth into it courtesy of IFC Films.

    The flick stars Page (Juno, Hard Candy), Sam Keeley (Anthropoid, In the Heart of the Sea), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Avengers: Infinity War, The Infiltrator), and Paula Malcomson (The Hunger Games trilogy, “Ray Donovan”) and is directed and written by David Freyne in his first feature film. Look for it in theaters and On Demand on February 23, 2018​.

    What happens when the undead return to life? In a world ravaged for years by a virus that turns the infected into zombie-like cannibals, a cure is at last found and the wrenching process of reintegrating the survivors back into society begins. Among the formerly afflicted is Senan (Sam Keeley), a young man haunted by the horrific acts he committed while infected. Welcomed back into the family of his widowed sister-in-law (Ellen Page), Senan attempts to restart his life—but is society ready to forgive him and those like him? Or will fear and prejudice once again tear the world apart?
